developments come to us just days following a washington post report indicating that president obama is considering banning assault weapons and high capacity magazines, but that's not all, not even close. the paper also revealed that universal background checks for all gun buyers, a national gun data base, strict mental health checks and much more are all being floated by this task force. as for the n.r.a., in the aftermath of the sandy hook tragedy, the organization recommended placing armed security guards in our schools. and earlier today, the white house reiterated president obama's skepticism of that idea. watch this. >> if the president said he doesn't want to pre-judge any recommendations that any stake holder might present, he did in his meet the press interview respond to a question about the specific recommendation that the n.r.a. had made and by saying that he was skeptical, that putting more guns in schools would solve this problem. but again, we look forward to hearing from a variety of organizations and civic groups and others who have insights into this problem. >> sean:
